The U.S. Premiere of
Written By: Michelle Dooley Mahon
Directed by: Ben Barnes
"Death by a thousand cuts" – that’s how Michelle Dooley Mahon describes Alzheimer’s disease after witnessing it strike down her mother Siobhan. As Mahon relives that time, her humorous and moving memories and rapier-like observations introduce personalities, history, and a nostalgic archive of an ordinary Irish small-town family forced to become extraordinary in their attempt to cope.
The Scourge takes audiences on a journey like no other, a beautiful dedication of a daughter giving voice to a mother sadly silenced before her time.
The Scourge is produced in association with Wexford Arts Centre as part of Origin’s 1st Irish New York’s festival of Irish Theatre.
